Search for 'USS Enterprise CVN-65 1982 cruise book. The crew take pictures all the time and produce these year books. Then try each successive year till you have what you need. Also try and get a hold of the 'detail and scale' volume by Bert Kinsey.

All the best.

Thanks for the book recommendation! I had no idea Detail and Scale started putting out books for ships!

It's one of a few but went out of publication years ago. Not easy to get a hold of but worth the effort in trawling the internet for a copy. Watch out for the greedy sods charging over the odds, around the £20 mark is reasonable!
